Thanks much to TheYoupiTouch for letting me know about this new Arne Jacobsen dollhouse that is set to hit the market in July 2009! Based on Jacobsen's actual villa in Charlottenlund, Denmark, this dollhouse produced by the Minimii company is reportedly a 1:16 structure that features magnetic walls for interior access and for hanging art and lights. Of course the company also produced miniature replicas of some of Jacobsen's popular furniture designs in a range of colors. If you missed out on having the old school and coveted Brio house that featured Jacobsen's designs, then this just might make up for it.
The Minimii company plans to have more designers create additional furniture and accessories for this house. (Remind you of another modern dollhouse?) They also plan to produce more dollhouses based on actual homes and significant architectural designs. Hmm...I wonder what they'll create next.
The site indicates that the house will retail for $3200 dollars, which I'm guessing is an error and probably means Danish Krone and that would translate to roughly $550 U.S. bills. I have inquired about the cost and distribution.
Update 2/27/09: The Minimii company is in the process of looking for a U.S. distributor and will provide more information when it is available.
